Lawyers Connect Overview


Responding to the challenges of being a busy young attorney or law student, the City Bar created Lawyers Connect, a mix of live events and online programming for young attorneys, be it through age or professional experience, and law students who want to take an active role in their career. Lawyers Connect was created to help you excel in your professional life, maintain a personal life, and enjoy your legal career.

Join us October through May at First Thursdays, a series of events where you can create and grow both professional and personal relationships. First Thursdays events occur every other month and feature activities from speed networking to Trivia Night to a Whiskey Tasting, a Beer Tasting featuring local breweries, and--most recently and well-reviewed--a Tequila Tasting.

In addition, enhance your management, communication, and other important skills at our Career Development Programs.

Upcoming Events

Thursday, June 2 | Lawyers Connect | Summer Sparklers: Sparkling Wine Tasting

With the days getting warmer, nothing is more refreshing than breaking out the bubbly. An often overlooked option reserved for celebrations, sparkling wine and champagne actually pairs perfectly with lighter summer menus.

Whether you’re already a wine enthusiast or novice wondering what the difference is between sparkling wine and champagne, participants will have the opportunity to network while tasting and learning about various sparkling wines, what to look for when selecting a bottle of bubbly, and what to pair with it.

This guided tasting tour will be led by Brooklyn’s own Happy Cork, a popular, female and minority-owned wine and spirits shop. Participants will taste a prosecco, sparkling sweet, sparkling rosé, brut, and a signature cocktail. Hors d’oeuvres will be served.
